Quote: "What Kevin Mitnick is about is creating a mythology of a hacker threat and using that threat to expand the government's statutory authority and increase its wiretapping capability. Find me an individual who was hurt. Find me a company that was hurt. The most you can say is that some companies had to close security holes... and arguably they would have had to do that anyway." - Mike Godwin, staff counsel for the Electronic Freedom Foundation.
